Late last year, Chris Anderson posted a piece about Scratch, the free programming language for kids.
Scratch is a new programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art – and share your creations on the web.
Scratch is designed to help young people (ages 8 and up) develop 21st century learning skills. As they create Scratch projects, young people learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also gaining a deeper understanding of the process of design.
Well, the conference he mentioned is coming up in July (24th-26th) at MIT, and we’d love to hear from anyone attending.
